This is an old fashioned style book which you can tell straight away from the pictures of climbers in it. It is aimed at rock climbers in particular, and not at tree climbing. It does however refer to one knot which is not to be reccommended for tree climbing, but which is now taught to and used by tree climbers throughout Britain. Overall, a good value book,worth buying for the money, but better ones on the market.
